in july. chief equity strategist. let's talk about july. what's the catalyst for a pickup in the market? >> well, from an economic standpoint the economy has been relatively shruggish. fourth quarter was barely positive. to some degree hurricane sandy has been taking half a percent or so out of growth. as we get into the spring months that will result in an economic pick up based upon the rebuilding. we think a lot of the noise relating to washington is starting to fade, the fiscal cliff, sequester, the debt ceiling, all of those issues seem to be moving out later into the year. so as a result the impediments that were slowing the economy down over the last couple of quarters we think will result in better economic growth.
